In a recent TV interview, Professor Christine Fair, of Georgetown University, made the following unfair (I can’t resist the pun here) statement in response to another expert’s views, contrary to hers, on the question of US drone attacks in Pakistan and their linkage to the accentuation of radical responses to the United…

I wanted to be a writer almost from my first memory. I was one of those intellectually precocious but socially inept nerdy kids, reading novels from the time I was 7 or 8. I came from an abusive household, and when I opened a book I could escape into it. To me it was a natural extension of this to be able to create an alternate reality of my own by writing stories and novels. Adults always thought it was so cute, when they asked me "what I wanted to be when I grew up" that I would answer… Continue

We chase myths in self-made Amazon
turtles that change colour in new waters
we create landscape of
nightmares and wade through
anacondas that threaten our confidence

we beat about the thorny grasses

and reality for control
challenge the Republic and divide
defence that could never… Continue
